The International Day of Happiness was conceptualized and founded by Jayme Illien, CEO of the United Nations New World Order project in 2006 to push forward happiness as a fundamental human right. The United Nations has observed this day since 2013 as a way to recognise the importance of happiness.  This resolution was first initiated by Bhutan which emphasised the importance of national happiness over national income since the early 1970s, thereby adopting the Gross National Happiness over Gross National Product.
